Beginning February 25 through March 1, CIAA men and women
student-athletes from each of our 12-member institutions will be
competing for the title of basketball champion and a chance to move
up to the NCAA Division II tournament.
Charlotte, for the ninth year, will serve as the backdrop to one
of the most popular basketball tournaments in the country drawing
more than 150,000 residents and visitors to the tournament and
events surrounding the week. Want game tickets?
Don’t miss a single minute of the action, which not only
includes 22 great basketball games, but also the CIAA Fan
Experience, a three-day FREE fan festival event that takes up
200,000 square feet in the Charlotte Convention Center and is
hosted by the CIAA’s generous sponsors including Food Lion,
Lowe's, Nationwide Insurance and Toyota.
